Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I merely wish to point out that what may have been a good system a few years ago, when Commonwealth work was small, and when our plant was comparatively insignificant, is not necessarily the best system to-day, when we are adding to our plant.

Senator WALKER(New South Wales; [9-59]- - Iwantto direct attention to Division No. 12, " Naval Works and Armament."I desire to know whether H.M.A.S. Protector, Gayundah, and Paluma, are likely to be of much use in case of war, or whether they are intended to be kept merely for social purposes for Ministers ?
